In the spring, two of our students, Ava & Lauren, learned that out of more than 2,200 applicants from 46 states and Washington, D.C., that they were chosen as one of the top 10% of entries to receive honorable mention in NPR’s National Student Podcast Competition.
They were notified in the midst of the national shutdown but the recognition is still worthy.
During their unit they had lessons from professional podcasters, took classes at TASCO, and integrated their ELA lessons to write their own podcast.
Beyond that, we are so proud of them for being courageous and trying something new, putting in the effort, and being vulnerable enough to share their story with the world.
Listen to their words of wisdom on how we can find, “The Beauty Within.”
Join us in congratulating Ava, Lauren, and special thanks to Mrs. Pethe’ for helping them along the way.
